SASKATCHEWAN STITCHES CONFERENCE 2014

The tranquil and lovely setting of St Peter's College, Muenster, SK which is where the SASKATCHEWAN STITCHES CONFERENCE is held each year. I would not miss it for anything! This was a particularly lovely sunset the one evening.

Oh my, did I have a great time at this recent annual event which is held at St Peter’s College, Muenster, SK OR WHAT?!  It runs for 10 days and is a hive of activity of ALL sorts of sewing, quilting & knitting related topics. It is organized and run by Wendy and her very efficient team at HAUS OF STITCHES in Humboldt, SK.

I taught classes on the following topics:

1. Are you using everything your sewing machine has to offer?  Janome26-62

2. Fun with Embroidery: making 5 all-in-the-hoop projects.

ONE OF THE FUN EMBROIDERY PROJECTS WE MADE IN THIS CLASS: FIBER PURSE

We also had “Meet the teacher” presentations most evenings. When it was my turn, I did SHOW & TELL with some quilts as well as garments I have made recently – for inspiration and to show various techniques. I also demo’ed the fabulous JANOME QUILT BINDER SET.

    I haven’t been to the dealer in awhile. I live in the US. Is there a binder set for the 9900 yet?

      Hi Debbie,
      Not quite yet in Canada. It is coming soon – sometime over the summer.
      Check with your local Janome dealer although I will do a blog post once they arrive in Canada.
